    Who are some players in this game that you would like to see play in Dallas?

    I'm a Jordan Leggett fan. Clemson TE #16. He's not my favorite TE but I think he will be pretty good.

    OJ Howard.. Good prospect too.. TE for Alabama.


    I like Minkah Fitzpatrick from Alabama but im not sure if he is draft eligible or not.

    How serious is Tim Willams' off field antics? Carrying a gun w/o a valid permit and possibly possession of marijuana.

    If he passes the drug test and interviews well, do you pull the trigger (pun intended) on this elite pass rushing prospect? Or did RG's drama filled tenure make him undraftable?

    From Bama i will have my eyes on on DE Ryan Anderson and DT Dalvin Tomlinson.

    From Clemson i will have my eyes on TE Jordan Leggett, DT Carlos Watkins, SS Jadar Johnson & CB Cordrea Tankersley.

    Forgot about Tim Williams. I'm sure his off field antics would be brought up every Sunday if he was to be Dallas Cowboy. But i feel he will still be drafted in the 1st.

    As close as Saban and Garrett are, wonder why we haven't drafted any 'Bama players.

    Fitzpatrick is a true sophomore I believe. I'll be watching Ryan Anderson all the DB's from both teams. Hopefully it's a blessing in disguise that Eddie Jackson won't be playing!

    There have been quite a few that we've been interested in but it just hasn't worked out one way or another.

    If teams knew everything about players, Witten and Lee might be the only players drafted in the past 10 years. Maybe Saban gived him too many details.

    Actually they had the 2 DTs rated fairly high on the leaked 2016 draft board.

    CLEMSON
    C. Tankersley - CB
    C. Watkins - DT (11 sacks & a good run-stopper)
    J. Leggett - TE

    'BAMA
    D. Tomlinson - DT (would be a GREAT fit at 1T)
    R. Anderson - LB (he would be the SLB/nickel rusher I would think)
    R. Foster - LB (he could push Jaylon to the role I described for R. Anderson above)

    Could you imagine a LB corp of:
    WLB - Lee
    MLB - Foster
    SLB - Smith

    OR

    WLB - Lee
    MLB - Smith
    SLB - Anderson

    Eddie Jackson is a playmaker and a good special teams player, but he's a free safety. I'm hoping he slips because of his injury (so we can take him), but he won't fall far.

    If for some reason we could get Reuben Foster to combine with Jaylon Smith AND Sean Lee? Have mercy!

    That is probably true - but, could that be because NOBODY has the 3 true 3 down guys?

    You can't play 3 linebackers with 3 WRs on the field.

    In today's NFL, it just doesn't make sense when considering the limited resources available to add players (salary cap+draft). Unless the third LB switches to DE on third downs, he just won't be on the field enough to warrant the cost.

    fwiw, I'm 100% in favor of running a 4-3 defense with an end who plays LB who switches to DE on third downs.

    I think part of it is Bama plays 3-4 and we play 4-3. The vast majority of their D players aren't a scheme fit.

    Jadar Johnson I think is an underrated player. He wouldn't be drafted here though, he is a coverage safety.
